This subject introduces acting and performance methodologies to first year students. The foundations are laid for the development of the art of acting and the composition of original material. This subject explores the core principles of performance creation: body, space, action, word, meaning, score, rhythm and repetition through improvisation and task based work. Performers will explore working spontaneously and imaginatively within a theatrical context. This unit is co-delivered to BFA Acting and BFA Theatre students.

  • Develop a critical awareness of the self in acting and performance processes.
  • Demonstrate an ability to work openly and collaborate within an ensemble.
